    Seems reasonable that a lot of their sponsors and giveaways will be limited to that area. Doesn't make their articles any less relevant.

    Yes and no.

    They certainly aren't magically easier to clean, neither does the curvature reduce lag or input latency... So I guess they think they're more immersive, and I can definitely see a possible argument for that point.

    Re: Win a monitor in the iiyama Kick Ass Curved Giveaway

    The Winners will be auto drawn from the system this week and 4 lucky people will get emails

    As with all Competitions, they get a link to click and it allows them to confrim themselves as winners and provide the details for shipping.

    Keep your fingers crossed people... 4 lucky people

    Hahaha, yeah I gave up and walked away from the Forums for a good few years a while back, I had a 'differing opinion' regarding competitions and the likes, the brown-nose brigade jumped on me so I just left, if it hadn't been for a certain mod, I wouldn't have come back.

    I've never won a HEXUS competition either, yet the more people who quit, the better my own chances are... Remember, no-one likes a quitter unless they're a smoker!!

    Might as well carry on entering. It's not like it costs you anything more than 20 seconds of time...!

    Doesn't matter if people stop entering, you still only have a 50/50 chance, you will either win, or you won't

    Ah, but it's not about chance, though, it's about the odds... and some people on here are very odd!

    Worrying!

    I have found recently that a lot of Hexus emails go to spam, I report them as 'not spam' obviously but I'd guess-timate maybe 25% don't go into my inbox :/
